The Benefits of Proper Pruning
Healthy trees are a wise investment. According to the PNW Research Station, a tree in front of a house increases the amount that a home can be sold for by an average of $7,130. And according to a study by Michigan University, beautiful trees that are well-kept can increase the value of a home by between 6% and 11%.
To keep your trees healthy and enhance the look and value of your home, it’s important to give them the pruning they need. Curb Appeal Tree Services offers tree trimming that is not only good for the health of trees but also keeps them looking attractive.
Why Is Tree Trimming Important?
Tree trimming benefits trees in several ways:
It can prevent infection and disease from spreading to other trees
Trimming guides younger trees to grow properly
It removes branches that are damaged or dead
Trimming increases airflow and light penetration
Pruning trees protect your property from damage. Dead tree limbs can break and fall during a storm, damaging your home or garage. Uncontrolled tree growth can damage phone and power lines, which could cause expensive damage.
How Often Should Pruning Be Done?
How often pruning should be done really varies from plant to plant. Most tree trimming services recommend pruning once every 12 to 18 months. Most people have this service done during the spring. However, some shrubs and trees benefit from pruning during the late winter or the start of summer.
How Are Different Types of Pruning Used?
The type of pruning you will use will vary. The four most common types of trimming are:
Health Maintenance: This method employs simple cuts to remove dead wood, diseased limbs, and damaged limbs. It gives the tree a polished look.
Density Reduction: This method is used to improve light penetration. Limbs are removed all the way back to the branch of origin. As the canopy is thinned out, more light is allowed through.
Structural Improvement: Structural improvement involves a combination of pruning methods. The goal is to improve the tree’s long-term health by addressing structural issues.
Size Management: This method of pruning reduces the width and height of a tree. Branches are shortened, especially if they are affecting utility lines. The spread of the tree is reduced.
Beautiful trees enhance the appearance of a property. Fruit-bearing trees are especially valuable. The better care you give your trees, the more attractive they will be, the healthier they will be, and the more value they will add to your property when the time comes to sell.
How pruning & trimming help your trees:
Pruning a tree can influence trees to grow in a more ideal way for its structural integrity.
It maintains the structure of trees to help mitigate the risk of broken limbs and falling branches.
Properly pruned trees won’t have compromising branch structures and improper weight distribution, two things that could lead to disaster later on in a tree’s life.
